The Jeff always has been charming. We have stayed there half a dozen times over the last 37 years. This was our first visit since the latest renovation. The room was much better and the bathroom was a great deal better--indeed, it was excellent. We had a king room in the west wing. Service still was cordial and excellent.

I'm a fan of old New England inns, and this one is a real winner. Everything was just as it should be: the check in, the room, the dining room. And the setting is ideal for a short holiday going to museums, sauntering down the streets past a variety of shops, checking out local restaurants. Amherst, of course, lends "a... More

Nearly perfect Their web site has a very good guide of things to do in Amherst which is much more use than the tourist information from the Chamber of Commerce. Minor niggle 1 - there are no facilities for coffee / tea making in the room. Urns are available in the morning in reception for tea / coffee. Despite requests... More

Amherst college owns this very special inn. Don't even think about campus housing! This inn is just right in every way. Our deluxe queen had a lovely, sunny sitting room , a huge bath and closet. Find Victoria, the bartender, for perfectly wonderful libations and then stay and have your meal there. Yes, there are places that have more name... More

I took my son to check out Amherst College and Hampshire College, and we stayed at the Lord Jeffery Inn. It's easy walking distance to Amherst College—practically right on campus—and all the restaurants and shops along Pleasant St. (Amherst's main drag). Extremely personable staff, lovely room, and prompt room service (breakfast) delivery. I especially appreciated: - Very comfortable bed and... More

What a pleasant stay we had at "The Jeff". One of the prettiest Inn's we've stayed in in New England. The rooms are spacious and immaculate and the common areas are just beautiful and comfortable. Thinking of reasons to go back to Amherst, great little college town a little sleepy in August, but that's just fine for this middle aged... More

We stayed one night recently while visiting Amherst College. We arrived late, in a torrential downpour and hungry. The young lady at the counter was very helpful, she lent us umbrellas, helped us evaluate our eating choices, and answered all our questions with a smile. Staff was attentive and helpful all the time including in the restaurant. The room was... More

I stayed at the Lord Jeffrey Inn when attending a conference at UMass. The room was comfortable, minimalist and a welcome retreat after a long day of meetings. I wish I had had the chance to stop and eat at the restaurant there.

Came to a tennis camp at Amherst College and decided to not stay in the dorm; I seem to be lucky in that I walked in on July 4th weekend; there was a wedding Friday and Saturday nights. It is an old inn - which has inherent pros and cons. The sound carries well in buildings like this. I rated... More
